Santa has many years of experience
entertaining children....


Our Santa’s started several years ago in residence at London’s most famous Grottos in Selfridges and Hamleys. We are delighted to be the official Santa for Fortnum & Mason and their VIP Christmas Storytelling sessions.

Along side our exclusive home visits they have appeared for such prestigious companies including Fortnum and Mason, The Soho House Group, The Purple Dragon, Universal Music, Nokia, SKY, O2, Google, BT, Skype, Not On The High Street, Top Golf, ITV, Christies, Barclaycard, Peter Jones, Fulham FC, FTSE, Silverstone, Bristol Zoo, Linley, Hotel Cafe Royal, The Savoy, Browns Hotel, Jumeriah Hotels, Sharky & George, Les Enfants and The Primrose Hill, Borough Market and The Motcomb Street Christmas Fairs. Santa has been invited to some very emotional hospital visits including Great Ormond Street and the RNOH with Princess Eugenie. Santa has made appearances at parties for movie stars, premiership footballers and rock n’roll legends including Sir Paul McCartney and endorsed by press including The Daily Candy London, Angels & Urchins, The New Statesman, Mother & Baby and Company Magazine. One of Santa’s Christmas Day home visits was featured in The Daily Mail on Boxing Day.

Santa also helped out with Rylan’s kids party for Text Santa on ITV’s This Morning.

Our Santa’s have full and recent CRB checks and come highly recommended. Rent-A-Santa won the #SBS Award from Dragon’s Den Theo Pathitis and we were honoured to speak about the business at The Makegood Festival back where it all began at Selfridges for The School of Creative Start-Ups.

"I've never met a better Santa, anywhere. I was enthralled. I have a picture with him in my house! I look like a giddy 6 year old.
Absolutely brilliant team"

"Just wanted to say thank you so much for once again, providing a magical Santa experience for our daughter, Herbie. You really do have the most amazing Santa.

With thanks and very best wishes for the festive season”

Kind regards and happy Christmas"

They have added this little bit of magic to our Fete, making it a very special day for our children. We now know where to go when looking for the perfect entertainers for this kind of events! Thank you for your professionalism. Everything went so smoothly...”

Santa was amazing and delighted all the children. His Santa costume was absolutely brilliant and his way with the children was really magical.
Please pass my thanks onto Santa for coming to Eastleigh.
With kind regards
Theresa, Eastleigh Council

"I just wanted to say a very big thank you to all involved in the Christmas Santa storytelling event. My daughter was enchanted by it all . The fact that she was on Santa's good list and he knew her interests has kept her smiling since we left and I think it will stay on her face until Christmas!!! The little 'goody bag' has not left her side since she got it , it even slept with her. All in all this was an amazing event for children , brilliant idea and perfectly executed, well done and thank you again.
Merry Christmas"
Fortnum & Mason

"I just wanted to drop you a line for firstly coming out to see us prior to Christmas - but once again for the most amazing 'performance' the children enjoyed every minute of it and still talk about it today. I continue to be the biggest fan of Rent a Santa it really is one of best ever finds i have ever had online. The delivery is amazing and it is value for every penny to stand back and watch the reactions and looks on our own children's faces and those of our close friends. Congratulations for creating this you really do have a great business ….Many thanks once again and hope to see you again next christmas. "

JC, Marlow

 

“We all loved it! Never mind the children it was one of the highlights of my Christmas. Santa was totally believable and the children were all very excited and really thrilled, how could they not believe when Santa was one of the most perfect Santa’s I had ever seen.

 

Well done, this deserves to be a success and I will be surprised if you are not even busier again next Christmas."

 

T.H. - London SW11

J.C. - London SW19

 

“Everything ran very smoothly, Santa was well…the real Santa! The amount of personal information that was discussed during the visit showed that Santa really does know everything."

 

S.D - London NW3

 

 

"I just wanted to thank you for coming to our house on Sunday morning. It was lovely to see you and everybody enjoyed your visit!"

J.C Marlow (2013)

 

 

 

"Thank you soooo much all of the kids loved it, you were the best Santa ever"

 

A.M, London W4

 

 

 

"You are the best. It is the highlight of the thanksgiving weekend! And the Xmas season. Thanks so much as always. And please let me know when you start your 2014 bookings!!"

 

A.L London SW5

 

 

 

"I cannot recommend RENT-A-SANTA.CO.UK enough! The effort he makes in understanding each child is extraordinary. Quite literally the most real Santa you have ever seen arrives with his bells and sack, and enthrals the children. The children believe completely that Santa knows everything about them as per the song and when he leaves they all want to stay on his good list! Brilliant! Magical to have the real Father Christmas sitting by your own Christmas tree with your children"

 

M.K London London SW3

 

 

 

“Santa was fantastic! He handled the rowdy pack of 3 year olds with grace and humor and everyone really enjoyed his visit. We received many compliments from the parents. My father was especially pleased, and even took him up to visit my mom who unfortunately had come down with something and was stuck in bed.”

 

M.M Richmond

 

 

 

“Dear Santa, you were absolutely amazing and thank you so much, can we make this an annual visit?! Absolutely fantastic! Happy Christmas! xx”

 

Z.A.L London SW3

 

 

 

“He was wonderful! Thank you so much. A properly exciting start to Christmas xxx”

 

O.C London SE15

 

 

 

"That was truly magical.Thank you so much for taking time out from your busy schedule to visit the children. Good Luck on the the 25th!!!"

 

J.M Kingswood

 

 

 

"It was fantastic. very magical and I know my 2 will believe for at least another year now thanks to Santa. He was lovely with the children and it was the nicest Santa experience we have ever had."

 

D.M Bromley

 

 

 

“I had a number of friends who were curious about this and I will recommend Santa very highly to them. This was far better than a shopping centre/department store. And the price point was very reasonable. It was a complete no brainer to have Santa come to the house rather than to schlep to a store, wait in line, have everyone upset, spend a fortune on poor photos, have everyone tired and hungry etc etc”

 

S.D - London NW3

 

 

 

“Fantastic - especially enjoyed the story he read and the fact he remembered everyone’s name and few details about each of us. Santa had obviously read his briefing note and the children were very impressed by how much he knew about them”

 

A.L - London SW5

 

 

 

“The professionalism - also fantastic costumes and authentic touches - rednose from cold, glasses, exactly what you’d expect from meeting Santa - the elf was great too and customers loved the fact that each child was called personally and the bell ringing. Warmth with children won over grown ups too who were taken back to their childhood. All customers very pleased”

 

D.H - London N8

 

 

 

“Thank you, Father Christmas was amazing - everything worked perfectly”
